Customer Reviews

My most used app

Working as a delivery driver, this app is amazing. I can drive safely and listen to my already saved, pre downloaded playlist as I'm driving. I can listen to everything I wouldn't have read if I was at a computer. I have used it so much, I signed up for the premium account which is very reasonable. I'm so so so so so so so happy with this app. I feel good about it too. The candy crushing app only crushes my feel good factor afterwards. Umano is the best.

Great app!

I have other news apps, but none give audio access to written articles. I listen to NPR, Freakonomics and related podcasts, but they all have a limited number of articles and I finish them quickly. It's nice to have an app like Umano that provides nearly limitless articles! Great app!

Superior app

Incredible and intelligence articles, this apt and their commitment to its service to us the clients are phenomenal. I'm far more informed with better knowledge and so I'm able to make smarter decisions in life and live and better quality of living all together. I am a premium member because I live a premium life.
